15. Live Internet bidding is available during the auction, however, Atlanta Auction Company cannot be held responsible for the Live Internet Bids that are not sent, received or executed by administrator. We accept bids from the floor gallery, by left bid, by phone bid and online. You may place an absentee bid online and still not prevail when the selling price is the same or, in some cases, lower than the winning bid. The reason for this is the auctioneer takes bids from where he/she sees them first. A person (live in the same room) relays the internet bids to the auctioneer and sometimes the auctioneer will see one of the other bids (gallery, phone or gallery absentee) first. If the online record of an auction shows the online bidder at the top of the bids, but has a floor bidder at the same price THE FLOOR BID BOUGHT IT. This occurs at every live auction where internet bids are handled and usually several times every auction. THE FACT THAT IT SAYs ONLINE THAT THE "EARLIER BID TAKES PRECEDENCE IS ONLY TRUE FOR BIDS PLACED ON LIKE "EBAY" BUT NOT FOR A REAL LIVE AUCTION". The auctioneer in a live auction DOES NOT KNOW YOUR TOP BID and, in fact, doesn't know whether your bid is absentee or in real time. Also, be advised, that some bids may be delayed due to the data transmission (and human transmission) so that the auctioneer does not recognize a bid from the internet. (This also tends to happen quite frequently and we have no control over. Your only guarantee is to be in the room bidding . The auctioneer is the final determination on who is the winning bidder and Not the Internet Clerk or Online Record of Bids.

If you purchase any firearms, you must provide a valid Federal Firearms License faxed to 770-237-9276 before we can ship your item(s). If you do not have a valid Federal Firearms License, the firearms must be shipped to a person or store that has a valid Federal Firearms license. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!!!!!! If you can not provide this information for firearms, then don't bid on any firearms..

All items are shipped Fed-x ground, if you want your items shipped quicker than ground additional charges will be added to you invoice.

Thanks for your compliance.
